Perhaps the best description of Joan Rivers's funeral came from the late, great comedian herself.
Ms Rivers, who died last week aged 81, wrote in 2012 how she wanted her send-off to be "a huge showbiz affair... I want it to be Hollywood all the way. I don't want some rabbi rambling on. I want Meryl Streep crying, in five different accents."
"Rule 1: talk about anything in Hollywood … except Gaza" read a headline in the Hollywood Reporter last week.
In the Jewish Journal of Greater Los Angeles, meanwhile, entertainment columnist Danielle Berrin noted that "prominent entertainment industry leaders, who have raised money for Israel and accepted awards from pro-Israel organisations in the past, have not been heard from".
